Review: Shank


Posted August 26, 2010 - By Dana Leahy


If slaying baddies is your cup of violence (And let's face it: if it's not, what's wrong with you?), then Shank is exactly the kind of game you can get behind.

With a 2D graphic novel-esque presentation that grabs a lot of inspiration from grindhouse masters like Tarantino and Rodriguez, Shank is sure to delight, entertain and splatter. From Matt Cabral's review:

"As the titular blade-baring badass, players embark on a blood-soaked quest for revenge against some dudes that did you wrong. The minimalist story is told through beautiful  cut scenes that look as though they just jumped off the paneled page. But trust me, you won’t be looking for narrative depth once the crimson life-juice starts spilling. From start to finish, Shank’s a gore-fueled romp that will have you shooting, disemboweling, choking, and eviscerating swarms of foes in a variety of exaggerated ways. While carving up goons for four-plus hours might sound like a recipe for button-mashing boredom, Shank’s style and smooth controls keep you giddily engaged throughout."
